NEWLY DISCOVERED LETTERS 



TTie two pwviojs pons of this Appendix had b«n 
AlreAilr printed, when ll)c Editor was informed of the 
discTTVcry ofafiumlicjof MSS_ UdoiipHg Ui Uie Putnn 
Collection in the hoLiue of Mr. Fretc of Roydon Hall, 
near Diss, in Norfolk. By thu courtc:^ of the owner^ 
he WAS permitted to csumiQe them, and found \haX, 
beajd<^ the lqnE-3*'*t [inginud of ihc trtlcts in Fcnti'* 
third and fourth volumes, and i coiuiderabk number 
of othert of a Utcr date* there were no Icu than 
Euncty-fivc unpublished lettctj of the same period as 
those CDntatinetl tn thtf prrHtrni pu1>lii:;iiion. All of 
then Hd evidently been examined by Sir John l^cm, 
■iid not A few had been copied by hiin m hia own 
hind, with fiLC-similGE of tlic «i||^Alurcs ajuI wUctv 
marks; showing th&t he had at one time thought of 
iadcdiDg them tn hi^ coUeclioo, bui that u^on nutvre 
ooaadenttion he thought them not of suAicicnt interest 
fbrpubHoiiIun. 

For OUT own pan, though we had always hoped 10 
oui^ this collection ac complete as possible, we 
cannot, under the cLraimsCftnces of the cii^c, attempt 
to UeMt these new ckdleriftU on the sj^c scaIc a& the
